These little discoveries are making me happy today:
The Sunflower Project, get some sunflower seed, plant them (you know next season), grow them and then track the activity of bees around it a little bit every once in a while, report it to this group of researchers trying to understand what is happening with the crazy virus all the bees have. Projects like this just satisfy the little field researcher in me.
The Small Object's Recipe Review post-it notes, these are just crazy great. Little post-it notes that you stick into your cookbooks with all your cooking notes so you don't forget next time you go to make it. Done in the adorable Small Object way, or course. I'm also dying to get a candle holder and I think the mustache magnet is brilliant. Her 'steno pad' site is fantastic, by the way, and has great do-it-yourself holiday ideas and strengthens my resolve to go 'hand (or artist) made' this holiday.
BuggaBugs felt food: this is the kind of felt food I want to stock in my son's little kitchen. I did sign up for her newsletter and got the free instructions for making a strawberry and had to make three immediately because they are so fun and easy.
